Hey there! I’m DeeDee Scarberry, and I create hand-lettered designs that express hope and fun! And I’m the founder and owner of She Laughs and Letters!
How did I get into hand-lettering?
I always had a fascination with different writing styles. In high school I used to pull up different fonts on the computer and copy them in my own handwriting. Once I found out my quirky hobby had a name (hand-lettering!!), I was beyond excited!
A few years into our marriage, we came WAY too close to divorce. From an outsider’s perspective, things looked HOPELESS. But God worked on our hearts and gave us a new love for each other. I knew that surrounding myself with written reminders of hope and truth was crucial to me as I prayed and waited for our relationship to be rebuilt.
So why not combine my love for lettering with encouraging words that revive hope and restore peace? And why not make it all pretty and fun to look at?
And so, She Laughs and Letters was born!
Why the name “She Laughs and Letters”?
1) I actually do LOVE to laugh!
2) My business name was inspired by Proverbs 31:25-
“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”
3) Becoming a stay-at-home mom (shout-out to all my SAHMs out there!) is what pushed me to start my own business! I wanted to be able to make my own hours so I could still spend a majority of my time with our sweet girl.
Thank you for stopping by! If you have any questions, comments, or need prayer or encouragement, do not hesitate to contact me!
You can also hire me to do modern calligraphy for your wedding or other event.
DeeDee lives in sunny South Florida with her husband, Ronald, her one-year-old daughter, AJ, and their two pups. She is a Jesus follower, loves food and board games, can speak Spanish, and can’t wait to go on another camping or kayaking adventure!
